Ever since the final episode of the sixth season ended a few weeks ago, the fans of the beloved medical drama television series have been curious to know what happens next in this wild roller coaster of a show. The anticipation has grown stronger than ever as in the final episode, it is revealed that Shaun and Lea head to the delivery room, and everyone from the hospital is there, except for one very important person.
Later, a tragic accident involving Drs. Perez and Kalu pull everyone away, including Dr. Murphy, which is a major revelation for the fans to know about the next chapter as soon as possible! We are certain that many of our readers will also have these questions lurking in the back of their minds, awaiting some hints about the next season.
If you are wondering the same, then we can assure you that you have reached the right place to get all the answers to your burning queries in one place. We at Web News Observer understand your inquisitiveness, and for that reason, we have listed down all the latest developments that have been confirmed for the already-renewed seventh season! Here is everything we know so far about ABC’s The Good Doctor Season 7.
The Good Doctor Season 7: Are there any latest updates in June 2023?
Right now, one thing is clear: the majority of the information relating to the seventh season has been kept under wraps, which isn’t surprising as we are certain that the network doesn’t want early spoilers to leak all over social media, eventually tampering with the interest of the audience. The other reason for such delayed acknowledgment is the fact that the ongoing writer’s strike has had a huge impact on the entertainment industry.
Due to the strike, the majority of production houses have started to put their work on hold, as the writers are refusing to resume their work until a proper decision has been made regarding their compensation. After all, the writers are the backbone of the industry and are crucial players in creating some of the best work that the viewers have seen in recent years, and their needs should be fulfilled.
As a result, no recent updates are being provided by the network in the month of June 2023!
It’s only been a few weeks since the renewal was announced, but for your consideration, we anticipate that the network will soon start revealing more details on the official release date and time slot in the upcoming weeks. Until then, we have only listed down the details which have so far been made public by the show creators, which provides a fairly good insight into what the fans can expect from the seventh season until there is an official statement issued by the network.
The Good Doctor Season 7: When is it expected to premiere?
Initially, the filming was expected to commence sometime around August 2023 in order to be ahead of schedule, and it is anticipated to release the new season sometime later in the fall of 2023 at the same time slot of 10 pm/9c, every Monday on the ABC network. This can only happen if the production starts on schedule and the network decides to roll out the series just like the prior season without unnecessary delays.
In addition to this, we would like to point out that, at this point in time, this is just pure speculation! The ongoing 2023 Writers Guild of America strike has the potential to change the schedule if the writer’s room doesn’t resume the work, which can lead to further delays in the filming stage, and the season might get rescheduled entirely for next year, for which the details will be confirmed by the network.
Until then, we urge the readers to be up-to-date with the official social media handles of the show. Also, check out the official renewal announcement as shared on The Good Doctor’s Instagram handle, quoting, “Get your scrubs ready, as #TheGoodDoctor is coming back for a new season.” Take a look at the official post below:

The Good Doctor Season 7: What to expect from the new season?
The theme of the show will be kept the same to capture the spirit of the show, which follows: Dr. Shaun Murphy, a surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, relocates from a quiet country life to join a prestigious hospital’s surgical unit. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, Shaun uses his extraordinary medical gifts to save lives at St. Bonaventure Hospital’s surgical unit and challenge the skepticism of his colleagues.
Following their long-awaited wedding festivities and his promotion to surgical attending, Shaun and Lea’s relationship is immediately put to the test, and they must learn to navigate life together as a married couple. Meanwhile, the team is dealing with changes at the hospital and in their personal lives that will present new emotional and interpersonal challenges for them.
As of writing this, we can assure readers that the specifics of the seventh season have been kept under wraps. But it is without a doubt clear that the plot of the next season is expected to continue from the sixth season’s finale episode, “Love’s Labor,” which will follow Shaun and Lea as they head to the delivery room and everyone from the hospital is there, except for one very important person. Meanwhile, a tragic accident involving Drs. Perez and Kalu pull everyone away, including Dr. Murphy.

The Good Doctor Season 7 Episodes and Streaming Options
As of writing this, we can assure the readers that the official episode count of the new season hasn’t been revealed by the network. But if we follow the pattern followed by the last few seasons, then the show is very likely to consist of at least 18 to 22 episodes with an average runtime of 41 to 44 minutes, which are expected to drop on a weekly basis. This count can be changed in case the creators want to conclude the series with the seventh season, which will be confirmed later.
The network has also not released any new teasers or trailers for the upcoming season as there is still plenty of time left.
In the meantime, check out all the seasons of The Good Doctor, which are currently on FuboTV and Hulu Plus, among other digital streaming services. The series is also available to rent or buy on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, and Vudu, with a vast number of membership plans according to the preferences of the users. Moreover, the series is also available to watch exclusively on ABC’s official website, where the episodes are published after they air on the channel.
